All Rounder: Jordan Clark - hard-hitting middle to lower order batsman and seamer.

Spinners Callum Parkinson and Mohammad Nabi have played an important role in the Foxes campaign so far, particularly in their win at Birmingham Bears, where they claimed a combined six for 33 from 5.2 overs.

Ben Raine hit the fastest century in the club’s T20 history, Nabi took two for 13 at either end of the innings and Parkinson weighed in with a career-best four for 20 as Leicestershire Foxes recorded their biggest ever margin of Vitality Blast victory in terms of runs.
